I somehow stumbled upon Ann, over at this blog. And of course I had to let her know about my St Nicholas’ Church, in Norfolk, where I grew up. Although I was a member of the much larger, livelier Baptist fellowship, all our school events [Carol Services etc.] were held at the Parish Church.
She’s just let me know that she’s done a post about the Dereham Church, here.
If you are ever in Dereham, do have a look at the Church, with its separate belltower [they incarcerated prisoners there, during the Napoleonic Wars] and also Bishop Bonner’s Cottages, alongside the Church
These are over 500 years old, and have a fascinating history too. They are now maintained as a museum.
Thank you Ann, for mentioning a favourite bit of my local history!
